XBMC running on Raspberry Pi
Man, I would like to get a couple of these!:) Here I am working for the last 4 days on trying to get OpenELEC to install and run on one of my old PC's (XBMC doesn't have the my nVidia Driver). Now, OpenELEC looks great! But instead, I could be having me some Raspberry Pi!
We wanted to keep the fact that XBMC is running beautifully on Raspberry Pi at least moderately quiet until Gimli and Davilla from XBMC had unveiled their demo at Scale 10x this weekend. Now they have done, so we can all talk about it: here’s some video showing how you can use your Raspberry Pi as a media centre. A $25/$35 media centre the size of a pack of playing cards.
You’ll be able to download the XBMC source tree, but we will probably also offer some binaries to make things easier for you – I’m also looking at getting it put in our default root file system if at all possible.
As we wait for the first units to come back from the factory, Dom’s been getting our kernel sources into a fit shape to release. A fork of the 3.1.9 kernel with our patches is now available at https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux.
